1,3,5-benzenetrisbenzoic acid is a versatile ligand, which acts as monodentate or bridging group with end-on or end-to-end coordination mode to form complexes with interesting structures.

1] can be caused as by bending vibrations of hydroxylic [delta](MOH) and hydroxyl groups, bonded with hydrogen bond and structured by water hydroxyls [gamma](OH), as by symmetrical and asymmetrical vibrations of monodentate carbonate ion, which is formed due to sorption of carbon dioxide on the metal oxyhydroxide surface [13].
4, monodentate, bidentate chelating and bidentate bridging.
This observation is alsoin accordance with results obtained from IR spectraldata that carbonyl group (C=O) is involved in coordination and thus also supports the monodentate and bidentate mode of coordination of SUs ligands.
This implies that the low 1,3-BD concentration provided the appropriate solution viscosity to promote the higher mobility of the monomer molecules favoring monodentate coordination with the metal and produced a syn complex (trans-1,4 form) with decreasing as--1,4 configuration [23, 24].
It is well known that the cyanide ion can coordinate to one metal ion through the carbon atom acting as a monodentate ligand or connect two metal ions as a bridging ligand through both the carbon and nitrogen atoms.
2008) reported the formation of two kinds of silicate on the hematite surface, including a monodentate complexed fraction and an amorphous surface precipitate.
The complex, di(morpholine)titanium dichloride (2a) which was first obtained by serendipity during the synthesis of complex (3a) was successfully synthesized using a chosen synthon and having bidentate ligand will have better catalytic activity than monodentate ligands.
With the increase of grinding time and treatment temperature the amount of bicarbonate- and bidentate-type structures decreases in favor of the carboxylate- and monodentate (Frost, et al.
